Sentimental Mom Pin With Metal Complex

It really is wonderful to create personalized pieces of jewelery for family and friends with Metal Complex.  This kilt/bar pin holds the names of two lovely children and for the centre I dangled some vintage findings that match the colour of their birth stones; garnet and aqua marine.

I used two of the oval tags (supply list below) to make the name tags.  Since the tags are small, I used some masking tape to hold them in place on the bench block.

I even marked some spacing lines for the letters leaving extra space for the hole I would add at the top of each tag.

After punching each letter, my tag was a little warped.  I used this plastic tip hammer to gently flatten my tag again.

Punching the holes was a breeze with the Metal Complex Hole Punch.

My last step was to add a little gilders paste to the letters.  I wanted them to be darker and you can see on the finished picture that they are easy to read.

Supplies Used:

Metal Blanks – Brass Oval 12mm

Brass Bar/Kilt Pin

Alphabet punch sets

Chasing hammer

Hammer with plastic replaceable tips

Bench block

Hole Punch

Iris Blue Gilders Paste
